Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This recipe calls is for a pumpkin pie made with fresh pumpkin.  Since every pumpkin is different I have decided to give the ingredient measurements for EVERY cup of pumpkin. So if you have 2 cups of pumpkin (enough to make 2 small pies) double everything else, three cups? triple it.

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/3 teaspoon allspice
  • pinch of ginger
  • 1 egg
  • 5 oz evaporated milk


Gut and quarter a pie pumpkin, steam the pumpkin for 30 minutes or until fork tender (like mashed potatoes) then puree the pumpkin, I do so in the same mixer that I will later add all of my ingredients in.

Preheat oven to 425

Measure out how much pumpkin you have then add all the ingredients above and mix until combined.

Add pie mixture (it will be soupy) to the pie crust, bake at 425 for 15 minutes.

Lower temp. to 350, bake for an additional 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center of the pie comes out clean.
